Call for Proposals in Greater Yellowstone Biodiversity Research and Public Education: The Camp Monaco Prize 2016

Nov 13, 2015

In Celebration of the 1913 visit to Yellowstone by H.S.H Prince Albert I of Monaco, the Camp Monaco Prize is being awarded as a joint project among the Buffalo Bill Historical Center’s Draper Natural History Museum, University of Wyoming’s Biodiversity Institute, and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation-USA. All three organizations are dedicated to the conservation of native biodiversity and have established the Camp Monaco Prize as a collaborative effort to promote this common mission.

The Prize was established in 2013 to foster innovative research and public education in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The GYE is world-renowned as a bastion of biodiversity conservation and an arena for exploring the relationships among human demographics, social and economic development, and natural resources conservation. Our objective is to award a $100,000 prize to support projects that will expand knowledge and understanding of biological diversity in Greater Yellowstone and foster concrete actions to safeguard biodiversity in conjunction with continued social and economic development. Proposals should be submitted via email to Dr. Charles R. Preston no later than December 31, 2015.
